CALANDRELLA | CALANDRELLI | CALANDRELLO | CALANDRIELLO

Calandrella has a stock between Lazio and L'Aquila and one in Morcone (BN) and Santa Croce Di Magliano (CB), Calandrelli has a stock in Marta (VT), one in Rome and one in Benevento, Calandriello has a stock in the Sassano area (SA) and Sala Consilina, and one in the area of Tramutola (PZ) and Paterno, Calandrello, almost unique, is probably due to transcription errors, could derive from the archaic term calandrella (type of lark), or calandrello (piviere), we find traces of these surnames in Campania in the 1700s with a certain Giuseppe Antonio Calandriello acting in a judgment. additions provided by P. Calandrelli prominent figures were the Garibaldian General Alessandro Calandrelli (Rome, 1805 - Albano, 1888) who was one of the triumvirs of the Roman Republic from 1 July 1849 to 4 of the same month 1849. additions provided by Fabio Paolucci Sono mainly four Calandrelli stocks in Italy: in Benevento, in Rome, in the Viterbo area and in Naples. It would seem to derive from the term calandra, which may designate a lark-like bird, a type of beetle with a long narrow body, or a machine (from the Greek kylindros, cylinder) made up of heavy cylinders and used to smooth fabrics or paper. In typography the grille is instead the press that compresses the flan against the composition to obtain the impression. The surname Calandrelli, also present in the Calandrella variant in Rome and in the Benevento area, could in this sense derive from a nickname attributed to the progenitor on the basis of his working activity (textile worker or printer) or on the basis of a particular physical or characteristic characteristic (calandrella because small as the bird of the same name, or because it is an excellent imitator of his verse), the latter most plausible hypothesis for the invention occurred in modern times of the grille. Among the various Calandrellis we identify distinguished important figures in the history of our country, such as Professor Ignazio Calandrelli, scientist and astronomer in the 19th century Naples, and the Abbot Giuseppe Calandrelli (Zagarolo, Rome, 22/5/1749 - Rome, 12/25/1827), astronomer and learned scientist.
